SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego police have made an arrest after a 26-year-old man was gunned down in the Webster neighborhood earlier this week.

The shooting happened at a shopping center near Euclid Avenue and Federal Boulevard just after 1:30 a.m. Sunday, police say.

When officers arrived, they found Eric Carroll of San Diego, suffering from a gunshot wound to his head. Carroll was treated for his injuries, but unfortunately, on July 20, he was pronounced dead at the hospital.

San Diego Police Homicide Detectives are still investigating, but say an argument is what led up to the violence.

Stewart was arrested Wednesday and booked into jail for one count of murder.
